Northern Area Committee

Welcome to The Northern Area of the Institute of Water!

We cover the whole of the North of England, with the bulk of our membership from Northumbrian Water, Yorkshire Water, United Utilities and our supply partners.

We want all of our members to reach their full potential, and are dedicated to supporting their professional development through an events programme which aims to be varied, informative and fun. Some of the highlights include our Annual Themed President’s Dinner and Annual Seminar which includes our infamous Pub Quiz.

Our committee is friendly and diverse with representation from across the 3 Water Companies and our supply partners. We would love to hear from you if you have ideas for events, would like to find out more about becoming a member or how you can make the most of your membership.

We look forward to seeing you at an event soon!

 

Upcoming Northern Area Events: 

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and the related Government guidelines. In light of an increase in confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the UK we have taken the difficult decision to postpone several of our IWater regional events.

Our main priority is the safety and health of our members, delegates, speakers and IWater team who are at the front line in providing essential water services and as a result we cannot justify putting anyone at risk.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

To keep up to date and view a list of upcoming events (and past events) in your Area, follow this link then filter by Area.
